FRIDAY FAVORITES...Dead of Winter Edition

Whoooo needs a nice cup of something warm with comfy clothes on curled up in a warm blanket? I do! After months of mild temps, Winter hit with a vengeance this past week with wind chills below zero! Bring on a little hibernation. Get your cozy on, Happy Friday Favorites and Happy weekend beauties!!


1. Warm Drinks
I'm not really sure what to drink in January besides water! I am and will always be a big water drinker. I feel like hot drinks are more for the Holidays and it's too cold for a chilled cocktail. I do occasionally still sip by beloved Baileys and decaf, but it's not the same. My weekly Starbucks latte doesn't quite feel as festive. This does look mighty good though. And a good cup of tea always makes me happy.

Hot Buttered Rum Recipe Here

Been a favorite tea for years, always loved that lil sleepy bear on the front.



Close 2nd. I like to brew the bags at home but do aoocasionaly get a cup at Stabucks.

2. Bright, Relaxing Spot by Water
I would give anything to be lounging here right now!


3. Week's Attire
J.C.Penny tunic sweater, Charming Charlie scarf, Forever 21 heart necklace

Kohl's turtleneck, Macy's necklace

The Loft Outlet cardigan and necklace, Nordstrom BP tunic, Aldo OTK boots


Anthropolgie top, Target Owl necklace


4. Feathers
I was catching up on some old magazines from last year on an end table and came across this cover of In-Style. Not only is Reese one of my favs but it got me thinking about the cuteness and coziness of feathers. Not sure they would be practical for me but maybe in smaller doses. Need to gather some inspo on how to wear them best.







5. Our Awesome Sons
As you know, our sons are our lives and this was another big week for these guys. We had another birthday in da housed celebrated at Ruth Chris. J is smart, handsome, strong, comical and has such a bright future ahead of him. One thing he has done for years and still does is try to scare the bageebies outta me and he usually always succeeds. Our sneaky, spectacular guy who we love to pieces. 

Senior night for the Wrestling Team was this week where the seniors were celebrated with parents for introductions and career boards set up in the gym. I love what wrestling has taught our son and it seems like just yesterday he was a scrappy lightweight and I dreamt of this night. So proud!!!

  5. I need to be on that beach too! I am not a winter gal at all. Yesterday I was in St. Louis for work and it hit sixty with the sun out. I was so happy! Of course today it is supposed to be below freezing again. Boo!

  6. Oh, girl! What a proud Mama Moment! I've told you before that your sons are so handsome and you're going to make an awesome Friend-In-Law one day! MIL sounds so "old." Anyway...you need to get me on the water train! I'm still hooked on Diet Coke and wine! Love all your weekly outfits -especially the splash of pink to brighten up the day and gloomy weather you guys are having. Let's plan a beach trip soon! I hope you have a warm and cozy weekend!

    1. Oh and about the feathers! I love Reese's dress, but feather fashion reminds me of that awful swan get up some celebrity wore a few years ago to the Oscars, I think. I can't get that picture out of my head! I think it's awesome that we think so much alike (including Reese today in our posts!)!

  12. I'm in a weird coffee mood too. My new favorite drink at Starbucks was the holiday spice flat white, but now that it's not the holidays I don't think you can order it anymore. Your sons are just darling and congrats on all of their accomplishments (minus the scaring!). You must be so proud!!! xo

  13. That feather skirt/dress is amazing!!!! I love that Zen tea. Have you tried the Wild Orange by that brand? I really enjoy it too!

    Can we talk about how well dressed your sons always are in pictures you share? Clearly you either shop for them or they picked up your good style gene. Hope you have a great weekend!!!

  16. When did the temperatures started freezing? It sucks. That rum warm drink sounds amazing. But yeah I love tea and for that matter I love coffee, too, especially in the Winter. And happy belated birthday to your handsome son.

    Many stylish outfits this week besides the crazy cold weather. Love all your long necklaces and tunic/cardigan sweaters.

    Happy Weekend babe!

  24. I had that sleepytime tea for the first time a couple of weeks ago & I loved it. I wasn't sure about it because I'm not a huge hot tea drinker but I approved lol.

  25. I love the first outfit - the whole thing - adorable. I also REALLY like the owl necklace with the last outfit!

    Have a good weekend!

  26. Those feather skirts are SO cute. If I had cocktail parties to go to and could pull off a skirt/dress with a feathered bottom I would totally wear one!

    My mom just reminded me a couple weeks ago that they used to make hot buttered rum and then they'd make them kid friendly (aka no rum) and call them 'hot buttered nothings' to give to us! Ha! We're celebrating our Christmas this weekend and so she's going to make hot buttered rum for the first time in years and I'll finally get to try it!

  27. I am such a water drinker as well. That hot buttered rum looks delicious. That looks like the perfect spot to get away from winter. I am ready to leave now. Looks like the birthday celebration was a good night. :-)

  36. My goodness, yes on the hot drinks! It seems I constantly have a hot drink in my hand these days--probably because it's just so dang cold! My fav is Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice tea. I could drink it three times a day ... and sometimes, I do!
